About the Production:

“My twenties have (so far) been some of the most confusing years of my life. Relationships and self-identities seem to be constantly in flux, and as my friends and I change, I often wonder if I actually like what we’re all changing into. “Never” contains all my fears, hopes, experiences – and most importantly, my questions – about what it means to be this age in today’s world.” — Brett Allen Smith
